 APPLICATION / INSTALLATION DETAILS

Wet-Bond is a specific brand of epoxy that deserves an entry all to itself, as it really does give great bonding to just about any non-porous material, including the almost impossible to glue PVC plastic.

In addition it works under water -- and hence in drenching rain. Got a rain gutter that you just have to plug up -- use Wet-Bond. Got a swimming pool piece that is cracking and will require partial or total draining of the pool to fix -- put on your snorkel and use Wet-Bond. Enough -- check out WATERPROOF EPOXY.
